Because, not every brunch is a brunch you should munch…
Brunch is such an integral part of Los Angeles’s culture. You’ll always hear “let’s catch up over brunch” no matter which part of Los Angeles you are in. What’s not to like about brunch? We have pancakes, bottomless mimosas and people in an exceptional mood because you know, weekends and day drinking...With that being said SB, let’s spend our Saturday and Sunday together with a latte in hand with these 5 recommendations I have for you! These restaurants are all fabulous for every price range. Simply click on the pictures to be taken to the restaurant's website.
Located at the rooftop of Eataly LA at the Westfield Mall, albeit it’s quite far from my home. This is my go-to spot right now. I’ve been there 3 weekends in a row! I’m talking quality Italian dishes at affordable prices. I love the trendy-upscale vibe and the view is spectacular. The ambiance is stellar. The well decorated restaurant/outside bar area is IG-worthy and aesthetics goal! Their bloody-mary is incomparable as well! If you are ever on the west side, this is your go-to!
Located in mid-city (La Brea area)! This place is exceptionally busy for a reason. The service is quite fast. The only negative I’ll say about this place is that it’s a bit pricey, not for the faint of heart. The smoked salmon Benedict is my favorite, thank me later! Please get there early, because come 10 AM on Saturdays the line is already wrapped around the corner.
One of my favorite spots is Bottega Louie in Downtown Los Angeles. So, when I noticed there was a new restaurant opened right across the street, I simply had to try it out. Great service and the bar area is so Instagram-worthy! There was a fabulous selection of authentic Mediterranean dishes, and if you ever get to taste chef Alex Manos‘ cooking, you are one lucky person. Overall the vibe is perfect and the food is unforgettable. A true DTLA gem!
Malibu Farm Cafe
In all honesty, I’ve only been here once. However, brunching here for one of my closest friend’s birthday can be summarized as nothing less than glorious.
If you truly want to enjoy this restaurant, ask for a seat on the top floor. You can watch with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The salmon scrambled egg breakfast plate is incredible! So, if you are ever on the pier, this is the spot for you.
I am a little bias on this one because it’s right around the corner from my home, so I am there quite often. Regardless of the time of day you come, the chances of you waiting for a table are very slim. The inside is aesthetically pleasing and spacious. For anyone who is on a gluten-free diet, this is certainly the best brunch restaurant in town. Some restaurants lose their quality over time, but Hugo's has decided to keep paying attention to quality food and thus, they’ll always be my favorite.
There you have it! The 5 hottest brunch places in Los Angeles for those of us who love to brunch.
